Reckless Driving Crashes in Mississippi
Reckless driving is commonplace on Mississippi roadways, and even the safest drivers are at risk of being injured by the negligent actions of a reckless driver. Each year, reckless drivers contribute to an estimated three out of every ten reported car crashes in the United States. Nearly 90% of auto accidents nationwide are caused by human error. The most prevalent form of reckless driving in Mississippi is drunk driving, which is responsible for nearly 30% of the state’s annual traffic fatalities.
In order to recover compensation after a crash, you have to determine that the negligence of another party directly contributed to your injuries. This can be difficult on your own, and many crash victims find themselves overwhelmed by the personal injury process.
